School of Continuing Studies hosts open house, Oct. 18

York U Continuing Studies

On Oct. 18, the School of Continuing Studies at York University will host an Open House, at the Toronto Reference Library: Beeton Hall. The event offers prospective students a chance to find out how continuing education can help them reach their career goals faster. The event will feature informational presentations on each continuing education program offered by the school. Guests will have a chance to get tailored feedback on how to meet their career objectives. Some of the programs participating in the open house include Big Data Analytics, Business Administration, Risk Management, Cyber Security and Accounting.

With six certificate programs launched last year, the School of Continuing Studies offers a constantly evolving roster of continuing professional education programs designed to address a deficit in highly skilled workers with the professional competencies to work effectively in cross-functional teams. The programs also break away from the traditional continuing education model, offering students faster completion times, flexible study formats and enhanced opportunities to develop invaluable soft skills. Students graduate with the holistic competencies valued most by today’s top employers, and are positioned for success across a number of trending industries ranging from finance to data analytics.

“The T-shaped professional is the solution to many employers hiring struggles,” said Tracey Taylor-O’Reilly, assistant vice-president, School of Continuing Studies. “Our goal isn’t just to position our graduates to get hired, but to be able to demonstrate that they have what it takes to do more and to get promoted.”
